How do I use the Activity Reports on AOL Parental Controls?

Do you ever wonder what your kids are doing online? Thanks to AOL Activity Reports, you can monitor your kids' online activities. Every time your kids go online using the AOL service or an external browser like Internet Explorer or Firefox, you automatically receive an email report that lets you know the following:

  • The websites that your child visited
  • The websites that your child was blocked from viewing
  • The emails that your child opened and sent
  • Any AOL Usernames that your child used or chatted with
  • The number of IMs that your child sent and received

Important: If you do not have the AOL Parental Controls software installed on your computer, AOL Parental Controls will report activity only when your child is browsing the internet while signed on to the AOL software. If you have not already installed the AOL software, please visit Discover AOL to do so. The AOL Parental Controls software is no longer available for download.
